poetry

the wine-dark sea

If your son is not intimidating
On the line of scrimmage,
If your daughter’s report card
Is not the brightest image,
If your children are not turning out
As healthy as you’d wished,
Perhaps on your dinner table
You might be missing fish.

– fisherman/poet Rob Seitz in a NYT article about the 12th annual Oregon Fisher Poets gathering. Participants come from Alaska, British Columbia, CA and Oregon, of course, and even Rhode Island and Florida.
